Egg Nog French Toast

Merry Christmas a day late! I hope you all had an incredible day. My boys and I had one of our more memorable Christmases. It was nice. Really really nice. Sammy, my boy who does NOT like change or saying goodbye to anything or anyone, showed me his lower lip a handful of times today. "I miss Christmas, Mommyl" I know, sweet boy, I do, too.

Dan and I made this super yummy and festive French toast on Christmas morning. It is GOOD! If you have leftover egg nog in your fridge, you just have to make a batch.

A few quick, very random side notes before I get to the recipe:

- Every single time I try to type "egg nog" I type "egg not."

- Elijah asked me yesterday, as I served him a heaping plate of French toast, "When you eat French food, do you start speaking French?"

- I don't ever want to take our Christmas decorations down!

Preheat a griddle or a large skillet on the stovetop.

In a large bowl, combine the eggs, egg nog, sugar, vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon.

Mix well and pour into a shallow dish. I used a 9x13 pan, but anything comparable will work fine.

Dunk 12 pieces of Texas toast (or thick-sliced white bread) two at a time, covering both sides until completely coated with the egg mixture.

Cook on each side for 4 to 5 minutes or until crispy. 

Cover to keep warm.

Serve with butter and syrup! Enjoy!

Have a great rest of your weekend!
